Abstract:The unremitting crisis in Zimbabwe has led to an unprecedented exodus of more than a million people, now spread all over the globe. However, rather than turning their backs on Zimbabwe, most emigrants retain close links with Zimbabwe and remit billions of dollars each year. The book contains sixteen chapters written by Jonathon Crush, Daniel Tevera, Alois S. Mlambo, Deborah Potts, Abel Chikanda, Alice Bloch, JoAnn McGregor, Dominic Pasura, Daniel Makina, Blair Rutherford, Kate Lefko-Everett, Nedson Pophiwa, Sarah Bracking, Lloyd Sachikonye, France Maphosa, Aquilina Mawadza and Tara Polzer. The chapters cover the history of Zimbabwean migration since 1990, internal migration (focusing on livelihood destruction in rural and urban areas), attitudes of skilled Zimbabweans towards emigration, the migration of health professionals (leading to gross under-staffing), the experiences of Zimbabweans in Britain, Zimbabweans in the British care industry, regendering the Zimbabwean diaspora in Britain (role reversal as for women it is easier to find employment), Zimbabwe in Johannesburg, Zimbabweans on farms in northern South Africa (now the vast majority of farmworkers), Zimbabwean women migrants in South Africa, smuggling on the Zimbabwe-Mozambique border, remittances and household survival in Zimbabwe, remittances, informalization and dispossession in urban Zimbabwe (rise of autonomous familial networks in the economy), transnationalism and undocumented migration between rural Zimbabwe and South Africa, metaphors of migration - Zimbabwean migrants in the South African media (xenophobia in the South African media) and South African responses to Zimbabwean migration.
